NN NFL Tournament of Badness Opening Round: Of Beasts and Busts

Beasty cranial accessory, bro.

So we had a little bit of controversy in regards to yesterday's matchup. Seems the folks over at Music City Miracles are more than a little upset that the rest of the league doesn't like Cortland Finnegan. They say he's scrappy, not a dirty player, and I'm really not here to judge that statement at this point. Suffice to say I like them, their team and their blog, but it looks like ol' Corty is advancing to the next round, and he'll up up against the NFL's exclusive license with EA Sports. Now that one should be good, methinks.

Today, we begin the second half of the opening round, which would be the right side of the bracket for all of you folks who have trouble with ... thinking. What do you guys think about the left side and the way it played out? It went basically the way I thought it would, and gave us some great matchups going forward. Today, we've got a great one, so make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the left side of the bracket and of course, view the entire bracket.

But first: remember, we are voting on what we believe to be the absolute worst thing of the two. If you're voting in a worst food contest, and you like pizza more than hamburgers, you would then vote for hamburgers in that matchup. Get it? Got it? Good. Make the jump.

(16) Player 'X' Being A Bust After One Season

This one really gets on my nerves because ... well, it's just harsh. They're rookies, maybe they have jitters, maybe they didn't get all the time they needed in the offseason, maybe a lot of things. Rookies do not always come into the league and dominate. There are rules, and then there are exceptions to the rule. There's no reason to call a guy a bust after one season unless he plays like Jimmy Clausen or something.

Oh or Michael Crabtree. Because that guy is a total bust. He isn't a team player and hates Alex Smith. And nuns. And veils. And rosaries. And crosses. Basically just nunnery in general.
